Favorite Character in the Ender or Shadow series?

Postby Rootersfriend » Mon Jun 10, 2013 8:18 am

Hey guys, I'm curious here: Who is your favorite character in the Enderverse and why? As I write this I'm struggling to figure it out myself but I'd be curious to see what people have to say!

(with the exclusion for me of Bean and Ender because they are kind of no brainers for me, I learned a ton about myself from reading about them) I have it narrowed down to Virlomi, Petra, and Miro

off the top of my head I'd say older Bean (Shadow of the Hegemon and Giant books), we're talking during his time with his Thai troops. And Older Ender during the Speaker for the dead and Children of the Mind books. The way they stand out to my mind I can't post here without mentioning. Hand down their young adult to late 20's. Go figure that's where my age is not at, but still.

Besides them I'd have to go with...the girl who scrubbed her hands to cleanse herself. Ahhh I can't think of the characters name, but I"m pretty sure it was in CotM. I know Jane was involved in the planet that had a "thing" they had to do.... Man I need to go back and read the series again...bad EAGLE!!

Quin-Jao I believe it was...or Qing-Jao, something like that...Gloriously Bright is what it meant though. It's been a bit for me as well...

yes thank you that was the name...something about her stuck and I think I wash my hands more than anybody I know because of her. But at the same time her story and those around her always stuck in my mind.

Infamous...hmmm I like the sound of that!!

and maybe...nothing wrong with having that title after your name. "EAGLE the Godspoken" got a nice ring to it 8)

So far, Adult Ender and Olhado are among my favorites. Quim was cool as well. Olhado had such a pure heart, and simple intentions, and Quim was just so true to himself. With both of them, their whole families went to make a difference through science and saving Lusitania, through ridding the world of descolada, but Quim and Olhado alike went for community happiness. Quim, spreading his faith to those who need it, saving those that he could. And Olhada's main goal in life was to just be a successful dad, like Ender. I love Olhado.
Salaam, my friend.

Right, but it was QIn Jao who scrubbed her hands and whose name meant Gloriously Bright. Wammu (however its spelled) if memory serves was the servant girl who slept with the guard so that she could be QinJaos servant after she met her in the field

I want to say ,"Petra (obviously), Ender or Bean" but I'm leaning more towards Achillles and Dink. When I first read the books, I HATED them. Try annoyed me, but after rereading the books a couple of times, they sort of grew on me.
